Can it really be half a century since The Beatles put away their moptops and went WEIRD? It sure is. On 17 February 1967, the band released a double A-sided single that signalled a brand new era for The Fab Four and changed the face of music forever. Not only was Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane a sonically-ambitious single, paving the way for the release of the momentous album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band later that year, but it was also accompanied by a pretty nifty promotional video.The film for John Lennon’s Strawberry Fields was suitably vague and psychedelic, filmed on a cold January day in a field in Kent, while the video for Paul McCartney’s classic Penny Lane featured the Fabs walking around the streets of Liverpool in a tribute to the Merseyside locale of the title.Only they weren’t filmed in Liverpool at all.
